So how does this work? Read 20% and then discuss here before reading next section?

Don’t post in here , post in the sub forum when I post the topics up.

Okay now read the first 20% and post your thoughts in this topic here http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/read-alongs/city-of-stairssomeone-even-worse-unmentionables-first-20/

You don't need to wait for other readers you can read as fast or slow as you like. you can go onto next section straight away if you wish or slow down it's up to you.

Just come back and see what others have posted after you.

@NedMarcus

Would you like to join us on the 18 November?
I'm not sure. I'm busy, but I'll take a look at the book and if it grabs me, maybe...

FYI the book club works better if people are posting at around the same time, but it's also nice to post there when you're reading a book that's been in a book club before.
I know I do that with the Malazan readalong, posting there while I'm reading them, finally, even though the main group read it a few years ago :)
So always check it out!

In March nominations please for book pick and sub genres for April 2020

We’ve  already had Epic and Fairy sub genre and March will be light sci-fi please pick a different genre.
You could pick noir or fantasy of manners or dark or grimdark or military or urban fantasy or high or low fantasy etc as long as we’ve  not had it before.

Try to keep books to under 500 pages

Standalone's or first in series

Rotate the author gender (male for April, female for May)

If you’ve voted for a book that wins , I would hope to see you in the book club.

Most important rule of all no Sanderson novels 😉
